The purpose of the Support Program for Perinatal Deaths is to support young parents experiencing the loss of a child during pregnancy, at birth or during the first weeks/months of life. This unique program was initially developed in partnership with Mrs Manon Cyr of the Vaudreuil-Dorion C.S.S.S. and the Suroît hospital in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield.
The E. Montpetit & fils funeral center supports families by offering free basic funeral services such as:
- the planning meeting
- the declaration of death if applicable
- local transportation
- the possibility of storing ashes in the columbarium
With such a program, no more children will leave the health facilities for a mass disposal facility where young families can never claim their child’s remains.
